Factors Influencing Successful Submission of PhD Theses.
Wright, Toni; Cochrane, Ray
Studies in Higher Education, v25 n2 p181-95 Jun 2000
Examined the submission rates of PhD theses by 3579 doctoral students at the University of Birmingham (England) from 1984 through 1993. The only reliable predictor of successful submission within either a 4-year or 10-year period was whether a student was researching a science-based or an arts and humanities-based subject with science students more likely to complete their theses.
